"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

Say it like you mean it

Day Twelve: Not using the exact prompt, but following their link and taking inspiration from one of Charles Bernstein's poetry experiments.

all the
forms of body
language, the disapproving sigh
is, without doubt, the worst
and most uncomfortable reaction when you've
just told someone you love who you
really are, because the next acknowledgement will inevitably
be one of absolute derision, one that means you
are now forgotten, even though you're still standing right there.
